Hindi Zahra

#sxsw #HindiZahra


Music is the story of her life, a family affair. The story of a Berber girl born in Morocco. Her father was in the army and her mother a housewife. She grew up to the sound of divas - raï and châabi, like Cheikha Rimitti, and the great Egyptian Oum Khalsoum - between traditional Berber music and desert rock’n’roll, with the blues of the great Malian Ali Farka Touré and the sensual folk music of Ismaël Lo in the wings. Her first album was released by EMI France.

Album sales :
60 000 (France)
40 000 (Worldwide)

She has been rewarded The Prix Constantin which is an annual French music prize awarded to the best album of an artist who has come to prominence during the course of the past year. She also received the Victoires de la musique (Music's Victories). It is the annual French Award ceremony that recognizes the best musical artists of the year.
